The late actress had her breakout role as Ireti in the 2003 Super Story series "No Pain No Gain," which starred her alongside Obot Etuk (Sandra) and Sam Uche Anyamele (Richard."

 

 

The series which aired for 32 Thursdays followed the story of Bose, who gets sexually abused and eventually pregnant. She is pushed to the streets by her employees.

Bose gives birth to Ireti, who in turn goes through her own share of a troubled life. Things change for her after she marries a doctor.

They give birth to Ronke, who, unfortunately, meets a gold-digger, Richard, whose plan is to take over her family business.
